Marjorie Sparkling 2011
“On 14 January 1943, an excited young army nurse, Marjorie, and her beau married in Alice Springs with less than 24 hours notice. The whole community came together to enable this joyful and spontaneous celebration, taking place as Australia was in the grip of WW2. Her patients made confetti, friends and colleagues donated their Christmas cakes and sparkling wine and the ‘workshop boys’ fashioned her ring from a crashed Lockheed bomber. Our grandmother Marjorie always loved a celebration, so it’s fittting that our premium Sparkling wine, made in the traditional method, is dedicated to her. Marjorie is inspired by our love of great Champagne”.
Marjorie Méthode Champenoise Sparkling is inspired by our love of great Champagne. Extended lees ageing adds complex toasted nut and yeasty characters to the honeyed poached apple aromas. The palate offers notes of lemon and is crisp with a lingering finish. A persistent fine bead and creamy mousse gives extra lift to these delicious aromas and flavours.
